Worst place I have ever stayed and I have almost no standards as all I care about is a place to crash at night and spend my days out and touring. I've been all over the world and was even homeless for a time- I am not picky- but this place was icky. There is a very good reason why... More

I studied abroad last semester in Prague but I came to Positano for my last big trip. it was the GREATEST trip ever and Cristiana and all the staff at Hostel Brikette were soooooo wonderful. They were accommodating, helpful, friendly and made us feel like family. Also her cooking and homemade lemonciello was incredible. I am 100% going back there... More

I LOVED my stay here. The staff are helpful and extremely friendly, they really made our stay! The view is absolutely breathtaking, and there is a lovely balcony to appreciate it from where the guests tended to congregate. Everything was really clean and the atmosphere was really lovely. Cristiana and Pete's Italian cooking was out of this world. They have... More

I want to start by saying that anyone with a complaint about this place needs to stop and realize where they are. Positano is a world class destination for the most wealthy people alive and there is a reason for that. Those of us lucky enough to visit a place like this at a price they offer should have no...

I just want to thank the amazing staff at Brikette! They were very friendly and accommodating.. I couldn't have asked for a better time. The location is amazing and the overall experience was fun and I made a lot of good friendships in my short time there. Anyone travelling here definitely go check it out, you'll have a great time!

Given that this is the only reasonable option in positano, we are grateful for the hospitality at hostel brikette. However, reviews are meant to show other travelers exactly what they are getting into. Bring fifteen euros in coins, because everything from coffee, to towels, to printing one sheet of paper for your train ticket will cost you. The social environment... More

Thanks for you feedback. We picked up that there was an issue with the fan you mentioned after you checked out, and it is now fixed; you should always let places you stay at know about this sort of thing, as they should be keen to get it fixed asap. All the best for your future travels. More

I stayed here a few days ago for three nights. The PROS: Most everyone who worked here was super friendly. They were very encouraging for guest to be social, which breaks the ice for people a lot faster, and made for more social connections. Most of the guest who stay were happen to be wonderful(young) people. The CONS: I stayed... More

Your friend’s review left us more than a little surprised, but your review sheds clarifies the situation. When you stayed with us, you were asking after a specific member of staff in the evening. This member of staff was not interested in your advances. The result is that you have written a review, with two goals in mind. Your first... More

Hostel Brikette has an amazing location and social atmosphere. The main draw is the terrace/balcony offering stunning views, with fantastic home-cooking and drinks served on site making for some really fun evenings during our stay! Beds and showers were clean and comfortable. And all the staff were keen to make our stay fun and activity-filled! Ali and Alannah took a... More
